Does low TSH level affect pregnancy?

I am pregnant in first trimester and my doctor suggested that I should check TSH level. It turned out to be 0.094. I have never before checked it so I don t know is this caused by pregnancy or was low even before I was pregnant. Can this in any way affect my pregnancy and should I get some treatment or not?

Hi.

What about the levels of the other thyroid hormones (T3 and T4); raised levels of T3 and T4 and low levels of TSH indicate hyperthyroidism and so I recommend a visit to your doctor requiring correction ma'am.

Best wishes.

I am 29 yrs old, married for 1.75 yrs and planning to start a family. I am diagnosed with TSH value of 5.9 and doc has prescribed Thyonorm 25 for 1 month and recommended to preform TFTs after a month. I am overweight - 5 feet / 59 Kgs so i am planning to start Gym as well to control weight. My question is - while my treatment is on, is it safe to try conceiving or should i wait for TSH value to be in control and then start trying. What diet would you recommend for me...
